Health Benefits Of Vitamin B5

Vitamins are essential micronutrients required by our body in small quantities to function properly.  Vitamins are essential to help maintain our overall health and well-being. Vitamins are organic compounds that cannot be made by our body and must be obtained either via food and drinks consumption or supplements or both.


Vitamin B5, also known as Pantothenic acid, is a water soluble B vitamin. It is an essential nutrient. We need pantothenic acid to synthesize Coenzyme A, which is essential for fatty acid and metabolism. Vitamin B5 helps to keep skin soft, healthy and smooth. It helps skin to absorb moisture from the air, keeping the skin deeply hydrated. Vitamin B5 has anti-inflammatory effects that can help stimulate your skin’s healing process. Good sources of  Vitamin B5 from foods include beef, chicken breast, avocado, mushrooms, nuts, seeds and milk.

Symptoms of Vitamin B5 deficiency include fatigue, stomach pains, cramps, insomnia and upper respiratory infections. Vitamin B5 also helps to thicken hair and add life to your hair. As Vitamin B5 is water soluble, it is lost when food is boiled. You may be at a greater risk of Vitamin B5 deficiency if you are an alcoholic, suffer from malnutrition by not eating healthily or taking birth control.


Vitamin B5 can be beneficial for conditions such as allergies, asthma, heart problems, managing diabetes and reducing osteoarthritis. A daily dosage of 900 milligrams of Vitamin B5 has been shown to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides, thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.


We must remember that our bodies require sufficient levels of all vitamins and minerals daily. It is therefore not possible to store these for several days, weeks or months. Consuming meals that are rich in a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains will provide us with most  of the vitamins and minerals that we require. However due to various factors such as soil depletion, we now need to take supplements to supplement our meal intake.


As our body cannot store Vitamin B5 for long, you need to constantly replenish your supply through healthier eating or smart supplementation.


You need to be aware that not all supplements are created equal or of top quality which is why you need to connect with a clinic such as ours, as we have done and continue to test the quality of various supplements and only recommend the best as we only have one body and must give it the best. You must not waste money on nutritional supplements that are not highly bioavailable or contact nutrients in inappropriate amounts or ratios for your needs. When it comes to supplements and food intake, quality makes all the difference and we must never eat only because it is convenient or tastes good.


One of the trusted supplements suppliers we personally use and recommend is called Usana Health Sciences as they have been supplied top rated supplements and skincare for over 30 years. You may get access to their products via this link. Usana’s supplements have been independently rate by The Comparative Guide To Nutritional Supplements as the top Platinum Plus 5 star rating. It is the only supplier we know who creates supplements based on what our bodies require vs pricing based on what the majority are willing to pay and then choosing inferior quality ingredients accordingly.
